I’ve just spent ages trying to sort out how the blank workbook launches. These notes refer to Excel in Office 16 and 365.
What tripped me up is that you can control the blank workbook displayed when you open Excel but you can only change the font settings for the Blank workbook you use when you choose File then New and Blank workbook.
Clients use Excel to manipulate large amounts of data but when they need to produce more professional and accessible reports they prefer to use Word. However that is time consuming and open to creating errors.
For a number of clients we have automated this process. One client calculated that our system saved two hours a day in producing their daily flyer.
